February 1 at Cowboy's in Calgary (where staff breast implants are not only encouragted, but paid for by management) there's a "special tribute" to former Stampede Wrestling announcer Ed Whalen...who passed away recently.
Apparently they are having a silent auction featuring rare Stampede memorabilia, archived Stampede shows and whatnot.
Just a heads up for those in the area...check the Calgary Sun for more.
Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?
A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"
Hell, Green Bay had to build a whole new facility to get the WWE back...for a TV taping. After a Raw in '97 (where Sunny shot her Super Soaker ads in the concourse), the WWE figured out that the 5,000-seat Brown County Arena equaled sh*tty gates.
